This doesn't have to do with the house, but its still a restoration. This is my 1955 Schwinn Spitfire! I bought it at an antique shop and got the replacement parts on eBay. First we took it apart and a really nice man in town sandblasted it for us. Then Dave painted it with car paint and I added Kitty's basket on the front.
Viola, the ultimate Princess bike. It is so great to ride this around town with Kitty in her basket. Becuase of the shape of the bike, I can even ride in a dress. One day, I was riding back from the grocery store and a man on a Harley stopped to tell me how cool my bike was. I told him I liked his too!
